PopCap's Evony Spoof Ads for Plants vs. Zombies Keep Coming

See, the true tradgedy about Evony is that it's apparently a pretty good game, I just... Can't play it, because I don't want to support something with such bloody awful advertising.

Pop Cap have done well to slag off the adverts, though :D Maybe someone at Evony will see how popular taking the piss out of them is an rethink their whole ad campaign...

Strategia:
That is so awesome. Those rule.

Keane Ng:
On behalf of anyone who has ever had to literally use a hand to cover a part of their monitor to avoid seeing one of those ads or appearing like someone who would want to see one of those ads, I can say that we do appreciate them too.

Firefox, Adblock Plus.

Not for those fucking flash ads. You have to disable Flash for the entire webpage : (

I always love satire and these ads make me want to play more of their game. gj popcap

Flashblock ftw. ABP + Flashblock = no more ads, period.

Are they going to carry on and do the Reader's Wives thing that Evony are doing now?

I haven't seen any yet, but I think they're hilarious.

I need to get back into PvZ and beat it...

GOD THANKYOU POPCAP!!!!

Does anyone even play evony?????/
All of there adds show so mutch cleaveage, is there even cleavage in the game????????
ITS FALSE ADVERTIZING I TELLS YA!!!

Ever since these ads came out I've noticed a marked decrease in the number of times I see Evony ads anywhere. Now, perhaps I only frequent the highest of high class game sites, but nevertheless... One can only hope something is having an effect on those creeps.

The_Oracle:
I just hope they don't get sued- this is fantastic. :D

Do you know how many lawyers PopCap have :D?

On-Topic: That's a hoot.

I wouldn't worry about it. I don't think it could get any clearer that these ads fall under the heading of, "parody", which is protected. Besides, if anything, it increases recognition of Evony. I have to say that I didn't notice the Evony ads until I saw that Popcap was makeing fun of them.

I was so sick of those ads, this just made my whole day. I love popcap.

Mainly I love Plants vs. Zombies. GREAT game.

My mother (a game and internet-savvy woman) will absolutely love this. She's been complaining about those ads for weeks, now.

I find this awesome, myself. I feel all the happier for buying PvZ.

PopCap are quite awesome. Not only is the game awesome, they mock those stupid ads that I've had to delibirately block them from my computer thanks to their somewhat obscene nature.

FU Evony and Woohoo! PopCap!

Now we just need these to replace all the actual Evony ads and I can safely browse the internet without having to minimize it when someone walks into the room.
At least I can say it's a joke.

Popcap rep goes up in my book!

I used to feel Popcap was the big evil corporation of casual gaming, but I've decided they are in fact awesomesauce.
<3 thanks guys.

that ad is way sexier then the original(evony.) ads.

Popcap, you are now gods in my eyes. Those ads pissed me off to no end.

Ahahahaha, that's totally awesome.

Never knew about this. I love it when game developers have a sense of humour.

Thats incredible, I absolutely Love PvZ and have hated those Evony ads with a passion ever since they started popping up absolutely everywhere.

That is at least a dozen flavors of win. If I hadn't already bought PvZ I would buy it right now. Go PopCap!

My major psychotic fucking hatred for Evony's ludicrous ads means it already owns infinitely more space in my head than it deserves. Please, friends, give Evony LLC no money, and tell others to do likewise. Let them starve.
